I had three sips just to see if I could get it down and it was not going. Overly sweet and chewy slick taste and mouthfeel. Looked good and smelled ok but I left a 90% full glass sit on the bar.

What the heck is a Quad IPA anyway? Let's just call this a DIPA for purposes of comparison.

Appearance is a bright copper color with a thin layer of head that dissipated very quickly. The essence of grapefruits and hops dominate the nose. The flavor is both fruity and malty with hints of orange, mango and apricot.

As far as hoppiness, I don't think that it quite ranks with the best DIPAs out there. Still there is something quite enjoyable about this offering even if it does not rise to the level of "hop bomb."

What we have here is a tasty and complex big beer that does not get overwhelmed by the alcohol. That is a rarity and makes this a pretty special tasting experience.
